TCC’s Bottom Line
Even without considering the top-performance ST, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the best-driving small cars on the market--with the impression of being an accessible premium car, not a spruced-up econobox. The 2014 Honda Civic brings better refinement back to the lineup, but there's more to come, we're told. The Hyundai Elantra already had the bases covered--we'll see if a new engine and new tuning draws it even closer to best in class.
